Hey dude! Game looks great!
Wanted to ask though,, the tile set with characters,, did you animate them your self or you had all movement animations already in it?
I animated and coded everything myself although the original concept for the look of the sprites was based on a sprite sheet done by 0x72. Unfortunately that sheet only had one frame done for each character and I had to do all the animations myself (about 24 frames per character plus hit sparks/projectiles/etc). Of course this doesn't compare to the amount of animation needed for the full game (out sometime this spring) ;^)
